This is a reality book about the one big question…………..What is the difference?
*Morality: a doctrine or system of moral conduct, particular moral principles or rules of conduct.
*Legality: the quality or state of being legal, obligations imposed by law.
Morality VS. Legality– This is a semi-tough one for me because it hits home. It is not just a matter of issues, but also a matter of separation between church a.k.a. morality and state a.k.a. legality. I never thought there had to be a strict togetherness. The relationship could be like one of those Hollywood types. The two should go to the party together, yet reserve some dances for others. However, they appear to be more like a couple of prize fighters in the ring. A jab here an uppercut there, an attempt at the knockout blow that barely misses.
I am not sure it is alright for our schools (I actually believe it isn’t) let alone our court system (here i know it isn’t). It is just my opinion mind you. I feel when you favor one over the other, you are treading on someone’s rights. I have first hand experience on the subject. I feel my rights are violated every two weeks and that the judge that allows this is probably crooked. Ok… so maybe that last part is a little over the top but If I find the right lawyer, we are going to try to prove it isn’t.
I went to court last summer to have my ex-wife cut off my paycheck. The judge stated that due to the fact that it was never specified why I agreed to spousal support in the original document, that I still had to pay. I wonder how many broads have him in their pockets. It is an obligation imposed by law, no particular moral principles at work here.
So maybe my morals are taking a hit here, but I feel the stress and anger everyday. It is better I let it out here with words, as opposed to physically. Anyway it is time to move on.
Obviously, I think something being legal does not necessarily make it moral. Let’s even explore this particular blog. One may be able to argue it is not morally correct to attack someone that does not have the opportunity to answer those attacks. One would, in most peoples eyes be correct. Although, since this is strictly my opinion and I am entitled to it. I may express it in any written manner I feel fit as long as I do not cross any legal boundaries.
Next: Perception vs. Conception
*Perception: is the art of perceiving , observation, awareness of the elements. A physical sensation that is interpreted through the light of experience.
*Conception: the function or process of understanding ideas. A complex product of abstract or reflective thinking.
Perception is based on the actual experience of an event or sensation. Whereas, conception is the interpretation of such an event.
The best description I heard on this, was by a preacher. He had talked about the perception and conception of the bible. He stated the following.
The perception of the Hebrew people back in the days of the bible was that God allowed the plagues and the famine. He did nothing to prevent them.
The conception of the bible today, by some, is that God not only allowed them, but he created them.
So, do you perceive how I came up with the conception of this whole idea.
